Just discovered this beautiful image and it reminds me of how much I love wearing kaftans, tunics and maxi dresses during the summer time. I love the feeling of soft silk on my skin and how the fabrics gloriously swinging around my body...are you a kaftan lover?

KAFTAN RELATED LINK LOVE:
I'm in love with this magnificent Marchesa Silk-chiffon embroidered kaftan but practically anything from Marchesa would be more than welcome in my closet. Just like this Matthew Williamson Printed chiffon long kaftan. This simple and beautiful Emamó Embellished cotton kaftan is a perfect beachwear and I adore the sleeve details.

omg, such a gorgeous picture! I love maxi dresses... and the feeling of silk but I can't wear them. I'm not slim enough and I'm a shortie.... =[ I'm not saying that if you're not slim, you won't look good in maxi dresses but I'm short and a size small-medium with big bust so it's not really a pleasant site.

Stunning Eve! I am in love with this image, she looks angelic! I personally get a little lost in kaftans but I think they are lovely. I do have a few tunics that I ADORE in the summer time! Hope your summer is off to a great, relaxing start! xoxo

Have a wonderful evening my beautiful friend.

They're beautiful to look at and I love to see women wear maxi dresses, but I'm short and plus-sized and a 36D, so I can't pull it off myself.

Although...I do have an awful lot of attitude ;), maybe I should buy one see how people respond to it.

CJ said...

Stunning indeed! Hope you are enjoying the start of summer. HUGS

It's perfect!I don't like prints,but I must admit this one is special.

Katie said...

Beautiful! I absolutely DIE for caftans. I picture myself swanning across my (imaginary) deck in Palm Beach, a glass of Veuve in hand...

Kelly Berkey said...

Oh yes I am! I love this dress and could wear it every day..but people would laugh at me because I'm in Minnesota now:-)
I did buy the most beautiful robe from an Etsy seller "Pretty Plum Sugar". It makes me feel just like this photo. Check out her beautiful wraps! You will love them:-)

heidi adnum said...

Lovely!

Zuzana said...

I agree with you Evi, I love to wrap loose fabrics around my body. My favorite attire this summer are wide pants (or jeans) worn with long loose, but still fitted dresses in wild colours and patterns, complemented by over-sized jewelry.
Lovely image, I only wish I was as skinny as the model;)
Have a lovely day dear friend,
xoxo
